Quality Appraisal Reviews with Saxton Appraisals, Inc.

As said in an announcement by the Federal Reserve, "financial institutions are obligated to have effective, objective real estate appraisal and evaluation procedures," and that appraisers performing reviews should "have the proficiency and skillfulness to assess compliance with the Federal Reserves appraisal rules and guidelines." Saxton Appraisals, Inc. provides appraisal review services that are objective, qualified, professional and in accordance with the Federal Reserve's regulations.

If you're in the need of a real estate appraisal review or have questions regarding an appraisal, contact Saxton Appraisals, Inc. today.

The Federal Reserve says appraisal reviews "have to determine whether the appraisal or evaluation is applicable for the transaction, the uncertainty of the transaction, and whether the manner by which the collateral valuation is obtained ensures independence and quality." In addition, they "must show whether the appraisal or evaluation report is consistent with the letter of engagement, which gives an account of the scope of the appraisal assignment." Lastly, the Federal Reserve notes that "some financial institutions add typical reviews with post-funding surveys of appraisal quality for a number of their higher-risk or greater-value dealings as a control to assist in identifying valuation disputes."
